April 20, 2020 Voigtländer Nokton 40mm F1.2 Review

Years ago I reviewed the unique Zeiss Planar 50mm F1.4 for Canon EF.  I call it unique, in that, contrary to expectations for Zeiss glass, it isn’t actually particularly sharp wide open.  “Dreamy” is the euphemistic term.  Yet it produces really beautiful images with lovely rendering, and becomes [Read more...]

April 13, 2020 Sony FE 135mm F1.8 G Master Review

The Sony FE 135mm F1.8 G Master lens is one of the best lenses I’ve used.  Full stop.  Stop and think about that for a moment, because after spending time with hundreds of lenses, that amazes me. It also passes the 24mm F1.4 GM as my favorite of the current crop of G Master lenses.  […] [Read more...]

April 11, 2020 Sony 135mm F1.8 G Master Image Gallery

The Sony FE 135mm F1.8 G Master lens is one of the best lenses I’ve used.  Full stop.  It also passes the 24mm F1.4 GM as my favorite of the current crop of G Master lenses.  If I could choose to own any of the (non-supertele) G Master lenses, this would be the one right […] [Read more...]

April 9, 2020 Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD (A056) Image Gallery

The Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD is one of the most highly anticipated lenses of 2020.  It is a fast, reasonably compact F2.8 telephoto zoom for Sony full frame mirrorless, and provides an alternative to either of the Sony 70-200mm zooms.  The 70-200mm F2.8 GM costs more than twice as much ($1199 vs $2598) and weighs [&hel [Read more...]

April 6, 2020 Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS Review

Many of the new RF-mount lenses have been ultimate performers with big price tags, but fortunately there are a few “everyman” lenses on the platform, too.  One of those is arguably the most practical:  the Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM.  This is the perfect lens for those who aren’t a fan of ch [Read more...]

March 30, 2020 Voigtländer 110mm F2.5 APO-LANTHAR Macro Review

I’ve owned the outstanding Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 65mm F2 Macro for several years now, and was intrigued with Voigtländer announced the Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 110mm F2.5 Macro lens.  My access to Voigtländer lenses in Canada is limited, so I jumped on a unique opportunity to review the 110mm and 40mm F1.2 lenses [Read more...]
